"Very hard to figure out. Did not see my Network Drives"

April 30, 2008  |  By sparky951

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Cons

Could not easily import my current RSS Sites. Program seems very close ended. Programmers spent too much time on making it look good, and not enough time on making it easy to use.

"Keeps crashing on my system"

April 12, 2008  |  By AlanRC54

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

Great introductory tutorial. Interface looks easy.

Cons

As soon as I try to use it, it locks up. Then, when I use Ctrl-Alt-Del to dump it, it automatically re-loads itself into memory without asking permission. With all the other similar RSS readers out there, I'm not going to troubleshoot this one.

"Superb in all ways."

April 05, 2008  |  By harliebe

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

From the download and installation to the daily ongoing operation, FeedBeast is overly simple to operate. There are easy to follow yet interesting tutorials. The program is loaded with features that I have not found in other RSS Readers including the ability to read articles from web sites that do not have RSS feeds.

There is also a wide latitude of options which are easy to set.

I had one problem: I could not figure out how to unlock the program after paying the $5 life use registration. I had a friendly answer immediately which resolved the problem within minutes.

Finally, I am already excited about the new version 1.6 which is currently in Beta. I love the current main screen but am already excited by the new screen in 1.6 which looks even easier and better.

A number of years ago and for several years I was a 'software junkie' and was lucky enough to find the awesome 'ClipMate' program in its first release. This is the second program of that quality that I have seen coming onto the market. I can hardly wait to start using the Beta version.

"BEST RSS FEED READER OUT OF SIX I HAVE TESTED"

March 05, 2008  |  By fcpros

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

Easy to follow RSS tutorial for new users to RSS feeds and RSS software. Clean 'easy to grasp' user interface. Fast response from online help forum if you have questions about anything related to the software. I have spent many hours if not days trying out and testing RSS readers for our organization and bar none this is the best.

Cons

Lack of RSS feed discovery integration with Internet Explorer and lacks the ability track web pages you want to monitor that do not have RSS feeds. HOWEVER, they are adding these to the 1.6 version to be released any day now. CAN'T WAIT!

"Very Happy I found this!"

January 23, 2008  |  By davids1313

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

While I'm relatively new to RSS technology, I'm already experiencing the tremendous benefits and value it provides. FeedBeast, which I fortunately came across, made the whole process easy and fun to learn. With an aesthetically pleasing interface, useful filtering functionality, numerous options and new version on the way, I highly recommend this product.

"Best Windows RSS Reader!"

December 31, 2007  |  By cacaosteve

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5.1.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
At first it did not work on Vista, but the author has fixed this, he is very quick with fixes. I like that I paid under $10 during the promotion. It is an inexpensive alternative to FeedDemon, but just as good if not better! I like the interface of FeedBeast better.

"I've died and gone to heaven"

December 31, 2007  |  By cacaosteve

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

I've finally found an RSS Reader that has a clean interface, is reliable, inexpensive (under $10 during this past holiday season), and does everything I need it to do!

Cons

At first it did not work on Vista, but now no problems on Vista. The author is very quick with bug fixes and will fix any problems.

"The best RSS reader and news aggregator ever!"

November 16, 2007  |  By mikansa

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1.5

Pros

I have enjoyed using this software and it is quite impressive jump from v1.0 to v1.5! Lots of nice features.

I am recommending this for die-hard RSS users!

Cons

There's very few cons, have been in contact with a developer and he said he is working on it for the next releases. It is very positive talk with developer. Unlike other software companies, Logan Murray, who develops this software, is a very good listener and been very quick on fixing the bugs.

"LOVE IT"

October 26, 2007  |  By Anydaynow

 |  Version: FeedBeast 1

Pros

Too many features to list, and, the new 1.5 version is out, I haven't downlosded it yey, but understand it is even better, I think the splash screen is beautiful, plus, I think there is an option for disabling that feature. This is the easiest one to use. I have tested almost every Windows feed reader on the web, but this program has ended my search, a search I've been on for the past 12 or 13 months! I'm Vert pleased!

EFA, Jacksonville, FL.

Cons

There were three issues, I e-mailed feed back to the program's developer; my suggestions, and much, nuch more, were added to the new version!
